I created a DLL and 7 projects use this DLL. The problem I am having is, I have to compile all the projects with the DLL every time I make a change to the DLL. This tells me it is static, but I want it to be dynamic. I do not know if I am doing something wrong in my compile of the DLL, or if the parameters to make the Dll is correct. Help

If you are not making major changes to the code, then you can try this.

Make a copy of the original dll with a different name. Open the project for the original dll, go to project properties, and under component tab select the option for Binary compatibility. In the file name space below the option define the path and file name of the dll copy.

Now if you compile the dll, it will try to maintain binary compatibility with the original file. Applications using this dll will then be able to recognize it.
